AKC Pet Cooling Dog Pad - Large

Closeouts. In the heat of the summer, the AKC Pet Cooling dog pad is your best friend's next-to-best-friend. Once your pet settles on the pad, weight-activated cooling gel inside the tough, water-resistant fabric cools down according to your pet's body temperature. The safe, non-toxic design cleans up with a swipe of a damp cloth, and works perfect indoors, outdoors and in portable kennels.

    This seems to work well - I tested it myself, to see how well it cools, and it provides a cooler spot than the pad it was on top of at 80' with me sitting on it. It wipes clean nicely, and folds for storage. My one complaint is that for a 100 lb plus dog - yes, he's huge - the "large" is not really all that big. It does allow a nice cool spot under his middle though, which is where he tends to position himself. Keeping in mind this is in use by an older dog that does not chew, dig, or otherwise destroy his bedding, I'm deducting one star for lack of sufficient size to handle larger breeds, but otherwise find this to be a very satisfactory product.

    Bought it in anticipation of hotter temps, have yet to see if the Poodle will lay on it, but have bought these in the past and they work. The price is unbeatable, thank u STP!

    Bought one of these from STP summer of 2016. It was intended for our dog but the humans in the family all wanted to sleep on it! Tried to order more but they were sold out. Glad they are back and in more colors so we can each have our own! On a hot night you won't be sorry!

    Since the pad is only intended to fit underneath the dogs belly, I found this one to be plenty big for my 74lb yellow Lab. I have purchased larger cooling beds for my large dogs in the past and found the extra size and weight unnecessary. When I first received the bed I decided to try it out for myself as I tend to overheat when I sleep. I positioned it right below my pillow so it was underneath me from my shoulders to my hips (I'm 5' 4"). As soon as I started to overheat I could feel the gel getting very cool and even cold. What a relief! I slept well all through the night. I came back to STP today to purchase another one, but unfortunately they are out of stock. Bummer! Guess my dog and I will have to share for a while... :-)

    This mild mannered pad seems to take the heat the dog just isn't equipped to. So far, it seems pretty rugged and is a snap to clean up. Camping trip with sandy soil and rain? No problem. I might get another one just cuz....

    The pad itself seemed fine, but for a "large" it really should be for a large cat not dog. The picture is misleading. It looks plenty big with a border collie sitting on it, so I didn't pay enough attention to the dimensions. How they could call something that is barely over 2 ft long (26" x 20") "large" is beyond me. So I am returning the item since it is not even close to being large enough for a regular collie.
